Research Symposium 2022

Research Symposium 2022


ND Energy held its fifth annual research symposium focused on research and scholarship in support of the 2021-22 Notre Dame Forum on Care for our Common Home: Just Transition to a Sustainable Future. The symposium was held on Thursday, March 31, from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. in 205/206/207 McKenna Hall. Nearly 60 members of the Notre Dame community attended.   

During the symposium, faculty discussed current research projects and engaged participants in conversations to stimulate action towards transitioning to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for generations to come. The AGENDA included topics on complex transfer reactions, integrated energy systems, water treatment technologies, advanced materials, innovation ecosystems, waste heat recovery optimization, and materials engineering for sustainability. The POSTER SESSION provided a broad range of other research topics by postdoctoral scholars and undergraduate and graduate students during a networking reception. Congratulations to poster winners Savannah Benjamin (Burns lab), Zoe Emory (Burns lab), and Hanna Hlushko (LaVerne lab).

We are grateful for the many contributions to the success of the symposium by our invited speakers Emily Tsui, Alexander Dowling, Kyle Doudrick, Yamil Colón, James Thompson, Tengfei Luo, and Jennifer Schaefer, and all poster presenters, as well as McKenna Hall staff. We especially thank Angie Hubert, Videography and Photography Program Manager at Notre Dame Research, for capturing the day perfectly in the photos and presentation recordings below.
